Anticipation for Marvel’s The Avengers has been at a high this month with the release of Captain America: The First Avenger in cinemas in July and with an official trailer now circulating the internet.

This week, Marvel Studios have given an official release to offset any spoilers with the cover art for a forthcoming comic series called Road to the Avengers.

The poster brings together The Avengers team: Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

The new book will profile the back story of these main characters, familiarising them with their audience, ready for The Avengers UK release on May 4th 2012 which is directed by Joss Whedon.
